From Beverley Hills 90210 to Gossip Girl and Glee, the genre of the teen drama series has added a unique and multi-faceted dynamic to the American television landscape.

This quality of the genre often causes adult viewers to dismiss the teen drama series as a product of guilty pleasure television.

The Specter of Race: Stephen King's Representations of Black Masculinity
One of the most pertinent concerns in King's extensive oeuvre is the black body. King's works often deal with the body as a site of horror and abjection. His novella The Body is only one example where the coming of age narrative is necessarily mediated through the search for the body of a dead young boy. Other texts are more clearly invested in the body's potential for (self) destruction. In works like Carrie, Thinner and Pet Sematary, fear of the body's destructive potential is dramatized in horrifying detail.
